More twists and betrayals: With backstabbing, 'backdooring', broken alliances, secret vetos and twist after twist, there was not much missing from this week's episode of Big Brother Canada.
Newfoundland's Jon Pardy dominated in the challenges, winning the Head of Household and Power of Veto, targeting "The Gremlins," Sabrina Abbate and Rachelle Diamond for eviction. But after Jon's other-half, Neda Kalantar planted the bug in his ear to turn on his ally Arlie Shaban, Jon did what he was told, taking Rachelle off the block with his POV and placing Arlie in her place.
"That's a big move," Arlie stated, completely blindsided and hurt that his friend had turned on him.
Allison White also shocked the house and made Big Brother history when the East Coast nurse pulled her secret veto out of her pants, using it to save the remaining Gremlin, Sabrina.
While everyone's jaws were on the floor, Jon was forced to pick a replacement nominee and had no other choice but to stick fan-favourite Adel Elseri on the block.
In the end, it was Arlie's unmistakable wit and physical strength that sent him packing as the first member of the Big Brother Canada jury. Host Arisa Cox dropped another bomb following Arlie's leave that at the end of the season, Canadian viewers will have the final jury vote, holding power to decide who will win the grand prize.
Let the games continue.
And then there were six: It was the competitors' turn to pick a song for their fellow peers on American Idol this week, adding an interesting twist to the episode. While the task may have seemed like the perfect opportunity to sabotage their opponents, the singers stepped up with great song choices.
Caleb Johnson kicked off the show by highlighting his charismatic rocker-style with the Kings of Leon's Family Tree, followed by Jessica Meuse who belted Miranda Lambert's Gunpowder and Lead with great vocals but held an awkward stage presence.
Jena Irene was the last to perform and stole the show with a theatrical performance of Radiohead's Creep, which Harry Connick Jr. stated was "unquestionably the best performance of the night." Her thrilling vocals and piano accompaniment showcased her incredible ability and earned her praise from the judges.
When the results were tallied the following night, it was country singer, Dexter Roberts who failed to bring in the votes and the 22-year-old was sent home leaving six singers remaining.
Three's company: The Top 12 voices were chosen as playoff week on the singing competition forced the finalists to sing a song of their choice to show their coach why they deserve to win.
Adam Levine, Shakira and Usher had to part ways with some amazing talent on The Voice this week, choosing their three top performers to take them to the top. Team Shakira brought the vocal heat with strong performances across the board, but her strongest voice proved to be PR rep Dani Moz who accompanied herself on piano, belting out a stripped-down version of Lady Gaga's Edge of Glory.
Adam's team radiated energy with some remarkable performances. Kat Perkins impressed with her rendition of Open Arms, a Journey classic, which both Usher and Adam described as "flawless," moving her along in the competition.
Usher surprised many when he chose recent team member Josh Kaufman who sang It Will Rain by Bruno Mars rather than his main man Stevie Jo, who took a risk with B.B. King's The Thrill Is Gone. But no one said the decision would be easy.
The live performances with the remaining Top 12 will begin next week.
All Disney, all night: Disney brought the magic to Dancing with the Stars this week inspiring costumes, choreography and music from classic films such as The Lion King, Mary Poppins and 101 Dalmatians.
Lovable characters like Aladdin's Genie, Cinderella's mice and Lumiere from Beauty and The Beast even joined in the dance routines with some surprise animation, which added extra excitement to the already entertaining episode.
Former DWTS winner, Donny Osmond was the guest judge of the week and admitted he felt like he was home again. The week was full of high energy and high scores from the first to the last dance.
James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd received the first perfect score of the season with their beautiful contemporary number inspired by the latest Disney flick, Frozen. Amy Purdy and Derek Hough also stole the show with a romantic waltz to Cinderella's So This Is Love.
Although Purdy struggled with manoeuvring her prosthetic legs, she earned a 38/40 with a near-perfect routine. Youthful pair, Cody Simpson and Whitney Carson impressed with an energetic samba to The Lion King's Just Can't Wait To Be King, but their previous votes weren't enough to keep them safe and they were shockingly eliminated from the competition.
